  1. I am not really a baker as you may remember but I have had this and liked it very much – well, semolina is a favourite to begin with 🙂 ! I cannot really make sour milk here as we only have the ultra-pasteurized supermarket milk. But I shall prepare it with buttermilk methinks . . or even plain yogurt of which there is always plenty in the fridge . . . best . . .

  2. OMG, this is America. Why does this recipe mention GRAMS, MILLILETERS? Have to go to GOOGLE to re interpret all this stuff. Did not appreciate.
